NC: Aaron Stephens Justified in Self Defense, Guilty of Felony Possession of Guns

NEW HANOVER COUNTY (WWAY) — The jury is no longer out. Monday, a murder trial five years in the making came to a close.

Aaron Stephens left the court in handcuffs, but not for first degree murder.

Stephens was found not guilty of first degree murder of Terry Greenwood, attempted murder of Anthony Lanza, and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury charges.

Stephens, a convicted felon, admitted to possessing three firearms, which is illegal. He was convicted on that charge and sentenced to between 14 and 26 months in prison. That time will be reduced by the six months he spent in jail before making bond in 2017.
